Fishing in Los Angeles

It may not be the first thing to come to mind when you think of this glamorous city, but Los Angeles fishing charters have a lot to offer anglers in California. Whether you’re a freshwater fly fisherman or a passionate deep sea angler, you’ll have a variety of game fish on your hands in the City of Angels.

The offshore waters here were made for sportfishing. Head towards Catalina Island when the season is right and you’ll hook into Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Marlin. If you opt to stay closer to shore, you’ll still get your fill of the action with Yellowtail Amberjack, Calico Bass, Barracuda, Rockfish, and White Seabass.

If you’re partial to freshwater fishing, on the other hand, you won’t be disappointed by what’s on offer in the lakes and rivers in Los Angeles. You can catch Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Catfish, and more without straying far from downtown.

To make the most of the offshore action near Catalina and San Clemente Islands, opt for a full or extended full day trip. If you’re short on time or wary of long boat rides, a half day trip inshore or on the river gives you more than enough time to enjoy fishing in Los Angeles.

There’s no shortage of Los Angeles fishing charters to choose from. Most head out of Santa Monica Bay, Long Beach, Huntington Beach, and Newport Beach. All of these locations boast excellent inshore fishing and direct access to Catalina Island. For freshwater charters, head to boat ramps along the Los Angeles River.

Rules & Regulations

All anglers age 16 and older must obtain a sportfishing license for recreational fishing in California. Several fish species in Los Angeles’ waters are subject to strict regulations and it’s best to head out with a reputable captain to ensure you’re fishing within the law.

Los Angeles Fishing Seasons

January

The season for Rockfish closes at the start of the year, but you can still catch White Seabass, Halibut, and more. With an average temperature of 55°F, it’s not a bad time to be on the water!

February

In winter you can enjoy relatively good fishing for certain species near Catalina Island. Calico Bass, Blue Perch, and White Seabass are all biting. You may be able to entice early Yellowtail using live squid.

March

March is when the season for various kinds of Rockfish opens, including Sheephead, Lingcod, and Cabezon. You can add these species to your list while fishing nearshore rocks and reefs.

April

In spring you will start to see more Calico Bass and Barracuda than in previous months. Larger Yellowtail are on the scene, and the fishing near Catalina Island is picking up momentum.

May

May is a great time for bottom fishing anywhere between the coast of LA and the islands. Rockfish, Halibut, Seabass, and Barracuda are just a few of the species you can catch while fishing here.

June

Summer is a great time to fish along the coast, with species such as Yellowtail Amberjack and Tuna swimming closer to shore. As always, you can enjoy great bottom fishing near the reefs, as well.

Everything is fair game in summer. You might catch a variety of Tuna while fishing offshore, or Marlin near the coast of Catalina Island. You may even reel in a Mahi Mahi around this time of year.

Even in December, you can count on pleasant weather in LA. Barracuda, White Seabass, and Halibut are all biting. The season for Rockfish species will be open until the end of the month.
